Fishing in Guatemala is rated by Saltwater Sportsman Magazine as the first choice for Pacific sailfish – almost every month of the year! No destination has more sailfish than Guatemala with less fishing pressure…year round. Guatemala is the best bluewater fishery on the planet and the surest place on the globe to target sailfish on fly rods. In addition to our prolific sailfishing we raise and release marlin each month of the year, and have immense populations of dorado, Yellowfin tuna, roosterfish and other inshore species.
Guatemala is much easier to get to than Costa Rica or Panama for bluewater action. Fishing trips to both of these countries often require an overnight stay in San Jose or Panama City and extended travel time. Our anglers are successful and busy people. So in today’s world of maximizing travel and fishing time there is no better place than Guatemala.
Our beautiful resort is located right on the water. Clients stay in one of our 4 villas or 2 suite rooms. It is the ideal environment to rest and relax after a productive day of fishing. In addition, our resort provides the right atmosphere for non-fishing spouses. No other program in Guatemala can compare to the setting our clients rise with each morning and go to bed with each night.

We have completed our dredging project in the canal. We are pleased to announce we are 100% Boat In, Boat Out at Pacific Fins. All of our boats are docked at our own marina. You eat breakfast – you walk 10 ft and jump on your boat. At the end of the day – you jump off your boat and we will have your drink waiting for you steps away. No more hopping into vans and driving over to Pez Vela Marina like other operators.
